An old frame can be repurposed into a necklace holder and in case you can’t find a suitable frame you can always build one from scratch using a plywood panel and some scrap wood pieces. You’ll also need some fabric but you can also use paper if you want. In any case, you that to cover the plywood panel so you can have a clean backdrop for the necklaces to contrast with.

Seashells are one of the best natural materials to make jewelry as they are very cheap and look awesome. Besides, you can find seashells when you go to the beach. Take two shells and make holes in shells and attach 2 jump rings and 2 earring hooks. The final step is to glue pearls. Done! You can use different kinds of shells and pearl beads for more variation. Also, you can use beads to decorate earrings.

The framed jewelry organized featured on monaluna is both elegant and practical. Notice that it has a thin storage tray at the bottom. It’s useful for storing pendants, rings and other small jewelry pieces and accessories. We also like the fact that the frame and the back panel were painted all white. If you want, you can use some sandpaper to create a distressed, vintage look.


Here's a space-saving trick: Opt for an open-face box that you can mount right onto the wall. When a shadow box is unavailable, any well-chosen crate, bin, or orphaned drawer can be retrofitted with a variety of hooks and knobs, turning your earrings and chains into objets d'art. Small decorative bowls perched on the box's lower ledge corral rings, pins, and brooches and complete the charming trinket tableau.

Read Before You Start!: Gather your ingredients and line your pan with a sheet of foil (shiny side up). Lay out your dirty jewelry and have each part of the jewelry touch the foil. Not sure why this is important, but apparently it is. (Note: I cleaned my silver, 14k white gold and even a diamond ring without any problems. I don’t recommend using this cleaner on stones like opals and pearls. Not sure what the reaction would be to these types of natural stones.)
This method works great on sterling, silver, gold, costume jewelry metals.. But do be careful if you’re got a lot crystals glued into a setting and limit soaking to no more than 90 seconds – or you might melt the glue. Also, don’t immerse natural pearls in this solution – it’s too caustic. It is however, fine for most gemstones and this homemade jewelry cleaner works wonders on cubic zirconia (CZ stones)! And in case you’re wondering ….it also works fab for cleaning silverware, silver frames or any silver home decor!

An old Jenga game is the perfect place to begin organizing your jewelry. If you don’t have an old Jenga set, you can pick them up for less than $10 and they make a really neat looking display for your necklaces. Paint or decorate the wooden blocks if you want and then just put them together, holding them in place with strong glue. Hang it on the wall and you have a really modern looking necklace holder that is as fun to make as it is functional to use and it will keep those necklaces from tangling in the jewelry box.
I have a great jewelry polish that is super simple. Take a small piece of aluminum foil, about 1″ square, and put it in the bottom of a coffee cup. Add about a T of baking soda. Pour boiling water over it and dunk your jewelry. You can drop it in and swirl it around, or you can just dunk it a few times and it cleans any tarnish off in seconds. I like to put a twist tie or string on the jewelry and then just dunk it. When I pull it out, sometimes there are some little dark spots. I just rub them out with my finger. This works well on tarnished silver dishes or tableware as well.

A magnetic board and a few magnetic hangers will give you the perfect place to hang and keep all of your jewelry organized. You can paint the board and the hangers to match your décor and they are perfect for holding necklaces and bracelets. The hangers are just a few dollars each at Wal-Mart and you can find the magnetic board at any office supply store. Or, if you have an old board that you aren’t using, you’re halfway there and you can just add the hangers to keep your jewelry within reach and untangled at all times.

If you happen to be replacing your staircase spindle, you’ve got the makings for the perfect jewelry holder. Even if you don’t have a spare spindle sitting around, you can pick them up really cheap at yard sales, flea markets, or any number of thrift stores. You’ll need a round piece of wood to hold the spindle up and some wire for hanging your jewelry. This is a beautiful jewelry organizer that you can paint or stain any color you need to match your décor and it’s really easy to make. The wires stick out in different places, giving you the perfect place for hanging all of your longer jewelry pieces.
A necklace holder can be as simple as a wooden board with some knobs on it. Actually that’s a pretty good description of the project showcased on asmithofalltrades. As you can probably anticipate, you don’t need many things if you want to make something similar. So go find yourself a board, stain it or paint it, drill two holes in two of its corners so you can hang it and screw in a few knobs. You can mix and match them however you want.
There are a number of ways that you can make a jewelry tree and they are perfect for hanging your bracelets or necklaces. For the simplest version, just grab a nice twig from the yard and stick it in a vase. Voila! You have necklace storage that costs nothing and literally takes about two minutes to make. You can also be a bit more crafty and create a beautiful tree that will hold necklaces, bracelets, and even rings if you want to take a bit more time. A jewelry tree looks great wherever you sit it and really does help to keep your jewelry organized.

I used to make and sell a “purple jewelry cleaner” that was also amazing but only knew how to make it in 55 gallon drums! Was biodegradable and non-toxic! Anyway, the reason why these cleansers should never be used on Pearls, Opals and costume jewelry, is because they are considered soft stones, they have to be glued into their setting, rather than prong set. Most cleansers will destroy the glue, at least over time. Costume jewelry stones are also usually glued in rather than the labor intensive work of prong set, to keep cost down and make it more affordable. Costume jewelry is also made with “slag” metal or junk metal, definitely sub-standard and doesn’t usually hold up against cleansers either. They can turn ugly colors and sometimes, even soften the metals used in costume jewelry. I don’t claim to know everything about anything but I do know a lot about jewelry cleaners, having sold ours for 25 years all over the country.

Remember those silhouettes that you made for your mom when you were a kid? Well, this jewelry organizer uses the same concept only you get a great bust that you can use to keep necklaces and other jewelry untangled and organized. It’s really easy and cheap to make and so adorable that you’ll want it just for the decorative purposes alone.
